Cousin Construction built our home in Boulder Canyon during the winter of 2007 - 2008. After building our home on the Missouri River in Pierre several years prior, and having a very good experience with that project, we were hoping to duplicate our experience with our Black Hills home. We did a great deal of research on builders by querying our Black Hills friends and speaking to many Northern Hills suppliers. In nearly all of our discussions, Cousin Construction came out on top.

We met with a few builders including Ron and Kristi and requested bids from three. We enjoyed Ron and Kristi's approach to our project. They were receptive to our plans and ideas and extremely helpful in their suggestions. We selected Cousin Construction and were fortunate to be able to start a couple months later.

The seven months of our building project were an amazing experience for Diane and me. Cousin Construction had Jason Watzel's crew build our home, and in those months we all became good friends. Being in Pierre we were only able to visit the project on weekends, but through the week we received frequent e-mails with updates and opportunities for input. Ron, Kristi, Jason and his crew worked daily on our project to make it even better that we had envisioned. They are absolutely "can do" people with great ideas for improving our project and frequent recommendations for ways to economize without compromise.

Throughout a very snowing winter Cousin Construction never missed a day of progress on our home. Their workplace is neat and organized. They have the tools and manpower to do the job no matter how complicated. And, they make the project fun, always keeping us in tune to the timeline and the costs. There were no surprises or unexpected "change orders" with Cousin Construction.

We ended up with a beautiful home in the Black Hills. We love the design, look and QUALITY of our home. Cousin Construction takes a great deal of pride in each of their projects and we couldn't be happier that we own one of them. We had an even better experience with our home building project in the Black Hills than we did with our project in Pierre. And, as a bonus, we developed a lasting friendship with a great couple, an amazing foreman and a wonderful workforce.

You will have an identical experience with your Cousin Construction project. We highly recommend Ron and Kristi Lyon and Cousin Construction for your building project.
